Thanks, willard. Cactus spines demand it.
Like I've said before, Don, you've got backlighting in your DNA. As to the subject matter.....it's plants like this that make me avoid that kind of terrain like it was the plague.
Both beautiful, specially the second one.
Tom, Cristobal, thank you!
Tom, I've stomped around in this country for several decades and gotten pricked by cactus thorns only two or three times. As with rattlesnakes, you just learn to watch out for them.
Thats's a backlighting party going on there.
Beautiful images and great technical work. Getting backlighting "right" is no easy task and you consistently nail it.
